Top Ten Tuesday #13: Books I Feel Like Everyone But Me Has Read
Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish with a different topic for a top-ten list each week. You can find out more about it here.
The links will take you to the Goodreads pages.
This week's topic is a rewind topic, meaning you can choose any past topic that you missed, and I chose:
Top Ten Books I Feel Like Everyone Has Read But Me
1. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
Everyone seems to have loved this book - the hype has been incredible! Even before it was published, I felt like everyone had already read it. I need to get my hands on a copy soon!
2. Houglass by Myra McEntire
Some people loved it and some people hated it, but it seems like everyone out there has read this book! It sounds so crazy, so I hope I can read it soon.
3. Go Ask Alice by Anonymous
This is the kind of book I feel like I should have read, and I honestly don't know why I haven't. It's one of the early YA books, and as a YA-lover, I think it's something you need to have read. I just haven't gotten to it.
4. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
I feel terrible for not having read this one! It's a modern classic that everyone has read, apparently. I really need to read this one.
5. Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins
I loved Anna, but for some reason I have't gotten around to reading Lola yet...
6. Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta
This one only sort of counts, since I started it but didn't finish. Everyone else loved it, but I just couldn't get into it. I really don't know what's wrong with me, since this is the kind of book where you just have to say the name in order for every YA-lover to start fangirling. I might give Jellicoe Road another try some day, since people have said it gets better and starts making sense at the end.
7. Anything by Daivd Levithan
I've read some of his collaborations, but I've never read an only David Levithan book. Everyone seems to love him, so I really don't know why...
8. Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead
I generally stick to contemporary, so that's why I haven't read the Vampire Academy series, but I feel like I really should, since it's one of the most popular YA books out there.
9. Anything by Libba Bray
I love Libba Bray on Twitter, but I've never read any of her books. Must get around to reading one soon!
10. Anything by Maureen Johnson
Really, the same thing goes for Maureen Johnson. She is probably the funniest person on Twitter, so her books must be good too, right? I've read Let It Snow, which includes a short story of hers, but I haven't read any of her novels.
So these are some of the books I feel everyone has read but me. What books have you not read that everyone else has?
